+ - Virgin Galactic May Not Break Karman Line and Bring Passengers Into Space->

Submitted by DavidGilbert99
DavidGilbert99 (2607235) writes "According to the customer contract those signing up for a $240,000 flight on Virgin Galactic's spaceship the company will bring you "at least 50 miles" above sea level. The problem is that the internationally accepted boundary for outer space is 62 miles above sea level — known as the Karman Line. Virgin is trying to get around the issue by claiming it is using a definition of space used by Nasa — in the 1960s."
